Oh how I love August and the joys & wonders August brings with her.
We get those delicious Avocado Pears along with Native Guineps in August. So what is there to complain about?
Ah, I heard some one say the heat man the heat.To me the heat is part and parcel of the whole, I say enjoy the now, winter will be here soon enough!
Speaking of Avocado and Guinep Trees and how sweet and delicious their fruit is, should not we consider that we have to care for these and other trees?
Trees need airflow, so that wind can pass easily through them,a rule of thumb is that birds should be able to fly freely though the trees. Another factor is high winds and consistent rainfall which may cause the limbs on trees to become water logged which leads to them tearing away from the trunk and entire trees coming down, ye gads, they sure would appreciate some TLC!
August in the past have been at the very heart of Hurricane season, this year is surprisingly quite on the Hurricane front, even though forecasters were calling a humdinger of a year. Hopefully we will end this year without any major storms.
Take hurricanes out of the equation, trees in urban environments are stressed to the max, what with buildings, sidewalks, lawnmowers, weedwackers, exhaust from vehicles,and as previously stated high winds.
So, if you love your trees, care for them, the returns are immense.
Until next time, love and enjoy your trees!
